Review: Hotel Vondel, Amsterdam

If you’re planning a trip to Amsterdam and looking for a boutique hotel with a convenient location, then Hotel Vondel is the place for you.

Located right next to the wonderful Vondel Park this hotel offers you a great location in a more calming area of the city. Looking for something more lively? Don’t worry, you’re also only a few minutes walk from Leidseplein, a busy square with bustling nightlife and regular trams connecting you to the rest of the city. Looking for Culture? The famous newly renovated Rijksmuseum is only a 5 minute walk away- Didn’t I tell you this hotel was conveniently located!


What this hotel offers

The highlight for me at Hotel Vondel is the wonderful lounge area and garden terrace, both well designed and perfect places to unwind after a day wandering through the city. The hotel also has a bar and boasts brasserie-style international cuisine and if you fancy something more authentic they also have traditional Dutch dishes on the menu.

If you fancy doing as the local’s do and seeing the city on two wheels then the hotel offers bicycle hire and the friendly staff will provide you with all the information you need to know in order to get the most of your stay.


Your Room

Hotel Vondel offers a selection of rooms; Single, Small Double, Standard Double, Triple Room, Executive Twin or Double, Junior Suite, Apartment and the Loft Suite.

All rooms are modern, well designed and decorated with contemporary art. You will also find the all important tea and coffee facilities (this can literally make or break a hotel for me!) and minibar in each room.

As you are located on a quiet residential street you don’t need to worry about loud city noises. The rooms alone show that this hotel deserves the four star rating it has been issued and for the quality you receive you’ll be surprised at the prices (Hint: You’ll be very, very happy!).


Our experience..

During our stay at Hotel Vondel we were given the pleasant surprise of being upgraded to the luxurious Junior Suite and what a suite it was! In the Junior Suite at Hotel Vondel you will find not only your tea and coffee facilities but your very own Nespresso coffee machine- what a way to start your day. On a business trip? You’re given a large desk for workspace, complimentary WIFI and universal adapters if required (how very thoughtful Hotel Vondel). On a romantic break? Not only does the en suite bathroom have an amazing two person rainfall shower but the suite also has a bathtub in the room which just screams relax! Now all you need now is a bottle of bubbly..
